Lina is one of those people that when you first meet them, you feel their good energy and love for people and life. We met in a women’s bible study and I remember watching her talk about her relationship with Christ and I was so moved by it. Lina radiates and shines of her love for Jesus!
She also has a really cool story…Lina is from Colombia (SOUTH AMERICA!!!) and has been here in Connecticut for almost two years. She is an Au pair for a family in Westport and absolutely loves it. She loves the area, the people, her job, and of course New York! She also came here knowing hardly any English, but now she speaks fluently (though she will tell you she doesn’t- her English is so good!). She came…across the world…by herself…at 23…knowing hardly any of the language. I mean this girl deserves some big-time applause for being so brave!
We had brunch at Terrain in Westport, CT and decided it would be a fun spot to take some pictures. I think a lot of us Connecticut people can agree that Terrain is one of the best places to go visit. It has incredible interiors, unreal plants, and an AMAZING restaurant and cafe. Did I mention Anthrolopogie owns it as well?! Yup, it’s their garden line. I had no idea it even existed until I moved out here and people kept telling me about it. Go, go, go! The other photo locations were in the town of Westport and in front of the (in my opinion) prettiest Anthropologie store. It has four stories and the exterior is just, well…breathtaking.
Lina, keep on shining and loving those around you. Your personality is lovely and I absolutely love these photos of you because you are such a good soul that shines!
